For those new to Chase Bank, you can make up to $350 in bonuses even without direct deposit. Unless you were lucky enough to received it in the mail, you will need to purchase a Chase Checking $200 bonus for around $10 on eBay. However, visit your local USPS and ask for a Mover’s guide. Inside the packet, you will find a Chase coupon up to $200.
Chase will also give you another $150 bonus for opening a Savings account in conjunction with a Checking account. Normally, you just ask your bank rep if you can get the bonus. I have heard stories whereas they encourage you to open a Savings account with $10K deposit in order to receive your bonus. Otherwise, you will need to purchase a Savings account coupon on eBay.

Again, you do not need to have direct deposit for the $200 Chase Total Checking Account bonus. You will need to deposit $10K to earn the $150 Savings account bonus. Open both and get $350.
